God Is Present

Matthew 24:42
“Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.”

More words of wisdom are offered today from the master teacher, Jesus. This may sound like an ominous warning about not knowing when our death will come. But also remember that Jesus said many times that we should not be afraid. Given that, this statement cannot be based in fear. Each moment is an opportunity to encounter the risen Christ. But instead, many times we end up sleep-walking through life…filling each day with meaningless pursuits. Stay awake! Each moment is a gift where God is fully present…ready to be made known to us in ways we can’t imagine…if only we would cooperate! But how often do we find ourselves too immersed in the noise of the world? Take a few minutes of silence to allow God to embrace and enlighten you. For when you seek…you will find.

Suggested song of the day– “Come to Jesus” on the Live to Love album.
